Folk Modern is a monthly Folk Night held every second Thursday of the month at Upstairs at The Ritzy in Brixton and the first Sunday every Month at The Finsbury.
It is a FREE night of acoustic music usually consisting of 5 acts, there is no specific genre to the music Folk Modern hosts but it is generally original, honest, thought-provoking and good. The acts are handpicked and curated by Steve Folk who is also the compere and will sometimes play as one of the acts.
Every effort goes into ensuring that the audience is a listening one and talking over the acts is forbidden and very much frowned upon.
"Anyone wishing to play at one of the Folk Modern can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send a link to your music and keep it short, I'm generally not interested in what others have said about your music, I prefer to use my own judgement, live songs are more desirable. Thanks in advance, Steve"
